• Defective flashing. It is a sheet of metal utilized in waterproofing roofing valleys, dips and angles. Look for flashing rust or dislocation, which is common in Hocking County and areas nearby.
  • Clogged up downspouts or crevasses. Downspouts might be choked with collected water or snow right above the flashing which might have caused the leak. This would be a simple roof leak repair.
  • Cracking and deterioration. Roofing generally deteriorates due to wear and tear. Check for any splitting.
  • Holes. Missing shingles or holes will trigger damp areas. Depending on the Hocking County climate, these can become severe rapidly.
